The Shoot For The Future Scholarship Fund was established to honor persons with spinal cord injuries who have overcome obstacles while displaying enthusiasm and perseverance.

Studies show that working after an injury improves quality of life, life satisfaction and adjustment, and educational attainment is the strongest predictor of returning to work.
